When summer is over and beach bums are not too many, the sporty and adventurous take over. The beach becomes a playground for many. You’ll see someone catching a disc, a group of friends spiking volleyballs, or wakeboarders skimming the waters at the White Beach. Meanwhile, kitesurfers, windsurfers and kiteboarders flock Bulabog Beach.

If your rugby, basketball, or soccer team has an important game and it falls on your Boracay vacation, no need to worry because you’ll find the following sports bars in the island. You are even likely to meet others who will cheer for the same team.
